Inspra is a prescription drug for adults who develop congestive heart failure after a heart attack. Congestive heart failure means the heart is too weak to pump enough blood through the body. Inspra can help these patients survive. It can be used with other heart medicines and can also be taken by adults with high blood pressure. It lowers blood pressure by itself or with other medicines.

How does Inspra work?

Inspra blocks a hormone in the body called aldosterone which, if your levels are too high, may lead to heart failure. By blocking aldosterone and other hormones, Inpsra helps your body and your heart failure condition. It is available in a 25mg or 50mg tablet and is taken once a day.

Inspra shouldn’t be taken if you:

  • have high potassium
  • have serious kidney problems
  • are allergic to any ingredient in Inspra
  • are taking certain types of medicines for:
    • fungal infections

  • have kidney problems
  • are pregnant or could become pregnant
  • are breast-feeding

Also tell your doctor about any medications you take, including non-prescription drugs, herbal or natural remedies and supplements.
